Costco’s new store in Mexico City is the largest in the country

Big-box retailer Costco has opened a new store on the west side of Mexico City with an investment of US $60 million and the creation of 280 new jobs. 

The store is located in La Mexicana park in Santa Fe, a business district in the borough of Álvaro Obregón, characterized by high-rise buildings and a large shopping mall.

The new store has a total area of ​​21,200 square meters, making it the largest Costco in Mexico, and includes a new section of La Mexicana park on its roof with a soccer field, two basketball courts and other recreational areas.

Transport links to the area are set to improve in 2023 with the opening of the Mexico City-Toluca intercity railroad.
